Winemaker's Notes

Deep red with shades of purple and violet. Aromas of berries, tobacco, leather and new oak, without any particular herbal or grassy notes. Consistent, warm and harmonious on the palate. Good elegance and persistence with ample finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Black currant, cherry, cedar, olive and coffee aromas and flavors are intense, yet match the refined structure in this classy red. The tannins are assertive and ripe, providing grip and focus. The finish evokes black currant, herb and spice notes. Best from 2015 through 2030."
95 Points

"Velvety and fruity wine with smoky, dried berry and cigar box character. Full body with ripe tannins and a long finish. Held together nicely. Pure Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2013. "
93 Points

"Arguably the hidden gem in the Felsina range, the 2009 Maestro Raro (Cabernet Sauvignon) is once again terrific. There is perhaps a little less pure varietal character than in some years, but in exchange, the 2009 has lovely warmth, resonance and expressiveness. Plum, sage, licorice and cloves all add complexity to the finish in a Cabernet Sauvignon that speaks eloquently, but with a Tuscan accent."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
